HQ Duck Dash Code of Honor

By entering the HQ Duck Dash, you agree to the following:

Trackable etiquette is important for (1) ensuring a fun and fair race and (2) furthering world peace. The Participant understands that this race is all in good fun and agrees to exercise, to the best of their ability, good manners such as the following:

  • Never, under any circumstance, fake (aka ‘couch’) log a trackable.
  • Log that you have retrieved the trackable from the geocache as soon as you’re able.
  • Move other trackables along in a timely fashion, even if they are your competitors and your deepest desire is for eternal bragging rights.
  • Do not bring chaos to the universe by attaching the same tracking code to multiple objects.

Participant understands that this list is by no means exhaustive and agrees not to seek loopholes of any kind.

Participant understands that violating this Code shall jeopardize (i) the existence of fun in the world and (ii) your trackable’s ability to bring home glory (aka bragging rights) of both the eternal and international kind. Given the size of the geocaching audience (millions!) and shortage of HQ drones, the participant understands that Geocaching HQ will not enforce all aspects of this Code; however, violating this Code may place your trackable at risk of disqualification (seriously).

  • These have to be released to qualify for the race, not just carried around and logged from cache to cache by the owner?

    I logged my duck dash TB for visits to cache does this disqualify my duck for the race. I’m new at geocaching and this is my first race challenge. I accept challenge and speedy journey to all participating.
    Thanks Pegasuslady

    That’s what I read on mission email. Because I logged visits to caches already but I haven’t filled out the entry form yet will be doing that soon. Good luck.
